and splitting the atom… While I didn’t do my usual Free Motion Thursday last evening, I did try something new. Something I’ve been thinking about for some time now. I’m REALLY good at that. Just t-h-i-n-k-i-n-g about something. In my mind I can make it seem nearly impossible. Then finally, it comes down to Nike, “Just DO it!!!”. So…sew I’m giving curved piecing a try. Not the harsh curves in a Drunkards Path or New York Beauty, but soft, undulating, organic curves. I DID it!!! : ) It wasn’t that hard. Whew! And, guess what? I kinda even liked it. I’ll be doing more…
Then, I have been eyeing the Joseph’s Coat quilt along. Hmmm??? I like it but, I can’t commit. Plus, I’d want to use those petals in a different kind of application. Alright. I got out some paper and a compass. Now it seemed like a math class. DON’T think about it, just draw circles for goodness sake!!! Well, I found the right size, after making three circle templates. And, I’ve begun making those petals…it’s a bit like splitting the atom.
I thought the curved pieing would be the challenge and the petal making would go easy. It’s the other way around. So, while I didn’t fmq, I was practicing and learning new things! Old dog, new tricks!? ; ) Yep!
Hey, TGIF and have a FABulous weekend!!! Especially if you’re going to the AQC…!?
